Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
2019 Nissan Armada OVERVIEW
Traditional, large SUVs are few in number, but you can count the 2019 Nissan Armada among them. This truck-based model is powered by a V8 engine and offers a roomy interior and generous towing capacity. The Armada delivers a handsome model for the money, but fuel efficiency isn't one of its strong suits.
What's New for 2019
Now standard for 2019 are four driver-assist features: rear door alert, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and intelligent forward collision warning.
Choosing Your Nissan Armada
The Armada offers one powertrain choice: a 5.6-liter V8 engine that generates 390 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque. It works with a seven-speed automatic transmission to send power to the wheels. All models come with standard rear-wheel drive, while four-wheel drive is $3,000 extra across the lineup.
This setup achieves an EPA-estimated 14 miles per gallon city, 19 mpg highway, and 16 combined, or 13/18/15 mpg (city/highway/combined) with 4WD. When properly equipped, the 2019 Armada pulls up to 8,500 pounds, which compares favorably to the GMC Yukon and Toyota Sequoia.
The full-size Nissan Armada seats seven or eight and is available in four trims:
The 2019 Nissan Armada SV comes well equipped and the available Driver Package adds value for a low cost. For just over $50,000, you can get a four-wheel-drive model that costs less than the Ford Expedition and Chevrolet Tahoe.
